Q. Can you talk about, it looks like you and Annika will be in the last group tomorrow on Sunday of a major. You guys have talked pretty openly about how you push each other. Can you talk about how much you look for that opportunity if you do, and does this add any extra muster to it from your perspective?
KARRIE WEBB: Yes and no. I think -- I think Annika and I both bring the best out in one another, and the fact that -- well, I wanted to make sure I was in that last group. Just because I think part of being in the last group, playing with Annika will help me. I really didn't want to be in the second to last group because I knew I wanted to know what was going on in the last group.
And because I think that, you know, Annika does bring out some good golf in me. Whether or not that happens tomorrow, I'm hoping that I can just play the golf I played today. But it's going to be -- it's going to be a good finish. You know, I think we'll leave it all out there. I think Annika is not going to, you know, lay down too easily, either. And not only her, but it's a good leaderboard. There's a lot of good players up there. There's a lot that are not only even; they are only four shots behind, 1-over, five shots behind. So there's a lot of people who, really, if they posted a low score early on tomorrow, they have got a good chance, as well.
Q. How many times have you played with Annika on Sunday?
KARRIE WEBB: You guys probably know more than I do.
Like I said, I don't know.
KARRIE WEBB: I don't think ever in a major -- to be in contention, I don't think we've ever been in the final group on the last day.
Q. Why do you think she brings out the best you?
KARRIE WEBB: I think because I know I need to play my best golf to compete with her. I think we both do that to each other.
Q. One more question about that. Is it good for women's tennis -- laughter -- women's golf, for No. 1 and No. 2, to go against each other?
KARRIE WEBB: I don't know, you'll have to ask Venus that. (Laughter.)
No, I think it's good. Hopefully, I think everyone is -- probably I'm sure ABC and ESPN are -- pretty excited that we both are going to be in the final group. I think it is going to make it for a good finish, and like I said, besides the two of us, there's a bunch of players that really have a shot if they got away tomorrow.
KARRIE WEBB: Is that aggressive? (Laughs.) No, I think I played pretty well. I'm getting it in the fairway, and then I really hit some good iron shots today.
I think when you see a few putts go in early on, it's easier -- it's easier to not feel like you've got to hit them to tap-in range. If you can hit it 15 feet, you know you've got a chance of making it.
Q. What happened on 18?
KARRIE WEBB: You know, those pesky cell phones. A lady had hers on. She was right behind me, and then continued to play with it after that and was pressing buttons and it was beeping. But, you know, that happens at least five or six times a day. Just the timing of the moment wasn't exactly what I wanted.
KARRIE WEBB: At first I was irritated, I was just trying not to get too mad. And then she kept playing with her phone and I was like, "You know what, can you just stop playing with that, please." And she said she wasn't playing with it, so I don't know how -- but anyway, that's not the point. I made the putt. So I got out of there pretty quickly.
LAURA NEAL: Let's go through your score card, Karrie.
KARRIE WEBB: Second hole, I hit a sand wedge to about eight, 10 feet.
Fourth hole, I hit, I think it was a 9-iron, to about 20 feet and made the putt.
11, I hit a 3-wood just short of the green and chipped it to about four feet and made the putt.
12, I missed the fairway left. And hit it into the -- my second shot into the right green-side bunker and missed about a 10-footer for par.
13, I hit a 3-iron to 12 feet.
14, I hit a 9-iron to 8 feet.
18, I hit a 9-iron to about 20 feet.
Q. You were saying yesterday, reading the greens, sometimes if you're putting well and trusting your stroke, it becomes a little bit easier to read. Was there a point today, maybe on 2, where you put a good stroke on it that kind of set you up for the rest of the day?
KARRIE WEBB: I think that, and, you know, I think I hit a lot of good putts early on, whether they went in or not.
I missed -- I had about a 25-footer on 3 and really just missed that because I hit it a bit too hard. But I made the putt on the second and I made the putt on the fourth, and from there, I felt a little bit more comfortable on the greens.
I really didn't have a lot of putts, very long putts today. You know, I had a lot of putts inside 20 feet, which, you know, hopefully you make a couple of those.
LAURA NEAL: Thanks, Karrie.
KARRIE WEBB: Thanks.
